    Technically speaking, that's a compositor thing, so it's the compositor that needs to be FP16-aware and translate lower stuff to FP16, Wayland per-se is indifferent to this.
    see https://wiki.gnome.org/Initiatives/HDR
    and page 16 of these slides (from NVIDIA) https://www.x.org/wiki/Events/XDC201...c-2016-hdr.pdf

    Wayland is brand new, I'd be surprised if it doesn't have HDR support built in. This is about expanding support to X.

    Hope this work can be handled like glvnd instead of EGL Streams

    I hope that this do not result in another fiasco that was the EGL drama.
